3 Must-Go-Places..

Hi there,
It's Monday again. And we are entering the 2nd week of October. I had a relaxing and memorable moment on last weekend. Thanks to dear one for the surprises. The surprises really made my weekend unforgettable..
I'll blog out about that soon.. ;)

Okay, as promised on my last post, today's post will be about the 3 places that I named it must-visit-place or you can call it must-go-place in Sabah. Because, you can visit this place for a day trip or have a stay at one of this places will be a great getaway too.. :) The 3 places are Kinabalu Pine Resort, Dream World Resort and Desa Cattle. You can find these places all in Kundasang where it takes about 2 hours drive from Kota Kinabalu.

It was last September, where me and dear one as well as the in-laws decided to have a weekend getaway at Kundasang. I always love Kundasang because of the cool breeze that are really different from KK. We decided to stay at Kinabalu Pine Resort because Mount Kinabalu can be seen here while the rate is affordable. We went there a week before Hari Raya holiday because Pine Resort was fully booked for Hari Raya. After all, it was actually a last minute plan, because we booked for Pine resort only 3 days before we went there.

Kinabalu Pine resort is a perfect place to stay at Kundasang if you wanted to have a nice, cozy, relaxing weekend and affordable rate. The standard range is between Rm160-Rm190 on weekend (rate will differ depends on any promotion). And rate included breakfast for 2 persons. The surrounding landscape absolutely beautiful. There's a platform provided where you can view the whole scenery of Mount Kinabalu clearly. You have to wake up as early as 5am to view the majestic mountain before it embraces by clouds. So don't forget to bring your camera to catch up some memorable Mount Kinabalu's view here. Bbq facilities also provided. Bring your marinated food and have some fun and relaxing moment while spending time with your loved ones while bbq-ing.. :)

We stayed at Kinabalu Pine Resort for a night. The next day, after check out at around 11am, we went to DreamWorld Resort. It takes only 15-20 minutes to reached the place. We didn't stay here but only intended to have a sight seeing before we lead our journey back to KK. I fall in love with this place. The scenery absolutely fantastic. No wonder they call it a place amidst the clouds because you can see this place surrounded by clouds as like you are on the top of the world. :) Click here for the chalet's rate and review.

-So colorful.. ;) -

- I love the landscape view too-

- Feels like the cloud so close to you..-

Meanwhile, Desa cattle is opposite the DreamWorld Resort. As DreamWorld Resort and Desa Cattle not far from each other, we decided to visit here. After all, i never been in this place. The scenery of green grass really makes my heart fills with LOVE. Feels like you are in New Zealand or some other 4 seasons country..haha.. Okay, it's always best to let the pictures do the talking..heheee.. So have a look here.. :)

-Welcome to Desa Cattle-

-Love the view-

-The cattle seems knew that I'm taking her pic.. :) -

-Can u see the greenie grass?..Love it!.. (ignore the model haha..)-

-The combination of the clouds, blue hills and green grass really makes me fall in love..:) -

-One cattle sneak out from fence & dear one is like the 'cattle keeper' haha..-

-Found this flower here and it attracted me to took pic!.. :) -

Okay that is all for now..
So, if you need some weekend getaway, don't hesitate to have a relaxing getaway here. For me, these are must-visit-place in Sabah.. :)

Hope you enjoy this post and the pictures.
Till we meet up again at next post.
